Extended and Dual Release Technologies Technical Brief

Extended release (ER) is often needed or desired to deliver crystalline and solubilized forms of compounds in once- or twice-daily dosing regimens to maximize therapeutic effect. Osmotic tablet technology is a key ER approach and can ensure consistent drug release over time, or zero order release, independent of GI tract pH or fed/fasted conditions. At Capsugel, we utilize two osmotic tablet technologies: proprietary asymmetric membrane technology (AMT) and swelleable core technology (SCT).
